Background: Built and donated by Gary Yeakle, an electric engineer in California who wanted to see his assets used in the Lord’s work. The boat made the long voyage from San Francisco, CA to Manaus, Brazil where it is now in service.
The launch was inaugurated on July 4th, 2009 (in honor of July 4th, 1931, when the missionary Leo Halliwell and his wife Jessie inaugurated their first mission boat – Luzeiro I – in Belem, Brazil).
